Mountain Plain Mountain was shot it in Obihiro, Japan, at the last standing venue to host a rare kind of draft horse races known as Ban'ei. Putting together a mix of motionless, contemplative shots and hard-edge, rhythmical, gibberish-rich montages, the slowness of these bizarre races is twisted to its limit. The overall timeline, thus, mimics the track's topography poetically described by a veteran trainer as "a small and a big mountain."
